|Bees at the end of the Summer|
Today, at what is traditionally "Summer's End", popularly known as Halloween, the Met Office has declared it the warmest 31st October ever recorded in the UK. A temperature of 23.5C (74.3F) was recorded at Gravesend, Kent, surpassing the previous record of 20.0C I took this short video of some of my bees earlier this week and as you can see they are still very busy. But, winter is just around the corner so the mouse guards are on to help the bees keep out those unwelcome visitors! As the saying goes, "in summer, remember winter".
